    Why don't you just buy some concentrated nitric acid?

    And yes, please work outdoors when you're making nitrocellulose. Carefully.

    I think it averages $50 a 100ml for concentrated and I don't know how much I'd need.

    It's also not a priority.

    You may mean: nitrous oxide.

    The laughing gas that makes cars go fast.

    But my little comment was an attempt at a little different kind of humor.

    LOL! I don't think I'd be really that worried about N2O fumes compared with HNO3.

    May I know how do you want to prepare nitric acid. Just curious.

    You might as well ask how I intend to brew beer with cannabis in it. I just know my lab (AKA kitchen) is only equipped to do one of the two safely. But I do have some decent toys to play with.

    That and locally I could only find sulphuric acid for sale.

    Good. Nitric acid is a weaker acid than sulfuric acid. So you displace it from its salt by using sulfuric acid. I think your method is based on this principle. By the way, I am from non English speaking country. So I do not follow your reply completely.
